Conflict among Sikhs

A revered leader of a sect among Sikhs died after Sikhs opposed to the sect attacked the leader and the head of the movement in a gurdwara in Vienna, Austria during the Sunday sermon.   Followers of this sect, who primarily come from an untouchable/dalit community, have reacted with violence in both Punjab and Haryana, two states in India, leading to several deaths and the imposition of police curfews in seriously effected areas.  For more details, check out coverage on the Times of India.
